  • Out of the Shadows and into the Dark

    Figured I would start a new chapter.... Kinda like the last one... I'll be trying to get some  improvements to the garden to make it a year round grow. I should have started this at the end of last harvest but was a bit overwhelmed with drying, trimming and packing it up.   I anticipate getting my grow rights back in a few months...so it's not too early to start....excepting the 100` heat. That will cause me to pace myself. Not only did I get older...I got smarter. Been watching a small greenhouse on my way to work. They are running "plastic" and shadecloth at the same time, right now. I presume to buffer the temps both directions.   have to keep my computer time down. The fan is toast and t will overheat so.....

    This is what I've been doing today. One wall, half of another. That'll give me room to shuffle things around. Still on the fence about the fake wall. Probably can accomplish what I need under the work table. Just as easy to hide. Not growing pounds here yet. The whole room is 20 X 16. Ceiling goes up after last wall, then piece in all the rips at the top, foam gun the cracks. Thinking long haul and short range here. Can't keep buying shitty smoke. It's good and all but it's no Zulu Skunk, you know what I mean. Not to mention the price.

    Why the internet has become a bad place.

    Its a scary world, I cant add much to what has been said here but will give a couple thoughts...First anytime you see a post/thread on FaceBook or some other places that look something like "Whats your favorite color?....etc" what your seeing is referred to as data-mining. If your using windows based PC or any normal smartphone, you have no privacy only a perception of privacy that these companies give you.    Look at any app you can DL for phone or almost any "free" software for your PC, If you read the TOS they tell you exactly what their purpose and intent is. This has little to do with proving you anything, some give you an ability to decide what the App or program can access- You need to think about this for a moment, If we believe any of these companies are using or going to use this information for nefarious purpose then...What would lead one to believe they would actually allow someone to opt-out. Its akin to believing that a rapist would listen to your safe word.    This whole subject is a rabbit hole and I could go on for days about it, the information I would be truly concerned about is what the govt has and gets- the medical stuff, the financial stuff...etc. Take a look online and wonder why they have built the huge data centers they have in the last 10yrs. VPNs and everything else are only as good as the programmer who set it up- our tax dollars are paying for people to crack encryption 24/7 and al it takes is a small chink in the armor for them to have what you feel is secured data.   None of this is to say "Give up" but your either connected or your not, You cant have the smartphone with tetris or other game app and your privacy- yes this sucks and no its not right but this is where we are.

  • Behind the 8-Ball

    Some place to jot down whatever arises during this 8-Ball Kush grow. Bless you Chris! Thank you for your generosity!   I don't wanna do a detailed chronological log or analysis here. I wanna have fun and learn from you all.    I have a real good feeling about this grow (if i don't think about aphids).  I'm really liking the vibes I get in this room - in spite of tent limitations.  The two girls are healthy seedlings now and loving life. They're growing like a weed! The tent stays around 75 in the 18 hr "day" and dips high 50s from midnight to 6. I'm doing my familiar Happy Frog - Perlite combo again on both. I was gonna do Ocean Forrest or one HF and the other OF but didn't and i have zero reasons why. Maybe next grow.   So I dote on them. I'm thinking what to name them. Lucy and Ethel? Laverne and Shirley? Mary and Jane? London and Paris? Or how about Jennifer and Angelina?  lol They'd probly yank each other's roots out.  So any suggestions?

    Persecuted for a Joint

    What are the 4 P's?    Well, It starts with the very first P, No not @PureGro1 but P as in POT, Marijuana,Reefer,The Devils Lettuce,...etc. Whatever you want to call her, as long as someone has indulged in Marijuana there has been a "Jeff Sessions" Which brings us to Persecution.      There has always been and Sadly may always be a segment of society that pre-judges people for their look, dress, color of skin or Because they happen to smoke Marijuana. They feel it is ok to judge and look down upon you because after all your a Marijuana user. They believe it is somehow their job to "keep you safe" from the "Evil Plant". Some are just control freaks who want well...control, Others do it for the money But some are just ignorant to what they are preaching. This Persecution is what leads us to and enables the third P, Prosecution...Once the majority are convinced your a low life worthy of disdain- because you smoke or grow a plant, Then the majority will be ok with people dressed in costumes kidnapping those low lives and locking them in a cage for inordinate amounts of time...because they smoked or grew a plant. (In some cases just a seed or roach or pipe can and has ruined some ones life.)   We often think of wars between Muslims and Christians as long running wars that span hundreds of years, The war on Marijuana maybe the longest and bloodiest albeit quietest war ever waged.       Which leads to the last P which is PROBLEMS...   A misdemeanor conviction can lead to, among many other things, the revocation of a professional license; the suspension of a driver’s license; the inability to get insurance, a mortgage or other bank loans; the denial of access to public housing; and the loss of student financial aid.   In some states, a felony conviction can result in a lifetime ban on voting, jury service, or eligibility for public benefits like food stamps. People can be fired from their jobs just because of a marijuana arrest.   Even though public acceptance of marijuana has grown significantly. (Thirty-five states and the District of Columbia now permit some form of medical marijuana)   Even as people scramble to take economic advantage of the green gold rush , thousands and thousands of people remain behind bars, or have been given punishments that prevent them from being "normal".   States should set an example by providing relief to people convicted of crimes that are no longer crimes, including overturning convictions. How many Moms, Dads, Brothers, and Sisters have died or are now locked in a cage to get us where we have gotten today? How many people need to be persecuted, prosecuted and caused problems because they smoke or grow a plant?

  • Iowa Senator Announces Plans to Introduce Cannabis Legalization Bill

    State Sen. Joe Bolkcom of Iowa announced on Monday that he plans to introduce a bill that would legalize the recreational use of cannabis for adults. Under his proposal, marijuana would be regulated like alcohol by the state government. “It is time for Iowa to end marijuana prohibition,” Bolkcom said at a news conference on Monday morning. The senator said that his bill, which he plans to introduce in the coming weeks, would establish a regulatory infrastructure to cultivate, process, and sell cannabis for use by adults at least 21 years of age. The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division would be tasked with cannabis regulation and enforcement under the proposal. Bolkcom said that the legalization of cannabis can provide economic opportunities that will otherwise go to nearby cities in states that already have legal pot or will soon. “There is an enormous amount of economic activity and job creation potential by regulating marijuana like we do alcohol,” Bolkcom said. “And we can sit by and watch those new businesses and new jobs go to Rock Island and Moline, Illinois, or to Rochester, Minnesota, and have Iowans take their hard-earned money and go to those states.” Senator Argues for Legalization in Op-Ed In an op-ed published by the Iowa City Press-Citizen on Friday, Bolkcom wrote that continued cannabis prohibition squanders scarce public resources. “Despite the best efforts of the criminal justice system to protect us from this overly exaggerated threat and the hundreds of millions spent on police, courts, jails and prisons, Iowans are not safer or healthier,” he wrote. “By legalizing and regulating the sale of marijuana to Iowa adults, we can refocus our criminal justice system on serious crime and expand substance abuse treatment programs.” The racial disparity in the enforcement of cannabis laws was also noted by Bolkcom. “The enforcement of marijuana prohibition has been grossly unequal. Even though black and white Iowans use marijuana at the same rate, black Iowans are four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession. A law that cannot be equally enforced is blatantly unfair and erodes trust in our justice system,” he wrote. Bolkcom also cited the collateral consequences that cannabis convictions can cause as another reason for legalization. “Iowa’s continued prohibition of marijuana imposes a heavy burden on Iowa families in the form of lost jobs, legal bills, jail time, broken families, violence and crime,” he wrote. “Why should we keep spending millions and millions each year to arrest, prosecute, jail and punish thousands of Iowans for possessing a substance less harmful than legal alcohol?” Although Bolkcom expects support from “a decent number” of fellow Democrats, he acknowledged on Monday that with both houses of the legislature and the governor’s office in Republican control, his bill has little prospect for success. “I think as long as Republicans are in charge of state government, the chances of us ending marijuana prohibition are about zero,” he said.

    Kentucky Marijuana Activists Plan Two-Day Rally at State Capitol

    The motto of the Kentucky chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) is “Pain Knows No Party”. And beginning February 6, advocates for legal cannabis will rally to put pressure on Kentucky lawmakers from both parties to pass reform bills. Pro-legalization lawmakers have filed medical cannabis bills in the Kentucky General Assembly every year since 2013. This year, there are four bills pending. With more than 80 percent of Kentucky voters in favor of legal medical cannabis, and a majority supporting legal adult use, Kentucky NORML wants the rally to impress upon lawmakers the will of the people. Kentucky NORML Chapter Will “Rally for Reform” at State Capitol Kentucky marijuana activists are planning a two-day rally at the state capitol to drum up a show of public support for a bevy of pro-cannabis bills introduced this year. The rally will begin on Wednesday, February 6, at 1:30 p.m. in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort. On Thursday, a second rally will occur at the same time and place. Crucially, three of the four bills the rally will support are Republican-sponsored. First, there’s state Rep. Jason Nemes’ “Let Doctors Decide” medical cannabis bill (HB 136). HB 136 would put the decision to recommend medical cannabis treatments in the hands of patients’ primary caregivers. Second, there’s Republican state Sen. Jimmy Higdon’s “Cannabis Possession Decriminalization” bill (SB 82). SB 82 would decriminalize possession for personal use up to one ounce of dried cannabis. Republican state Sen. Dan Seum’s SB 80 is the only bill proposing full, adult-use legalization. Sen. Seum has a personal connection to the issue, telling colleagues in the Capitol that he “smoked a joint” instead of taking prescription opioids during his treatment for colon cancer. Finally, the only Democrat-sponsored cannabis legislation, Sen. Perry Clark’s “Shauna’s Law” (SB 83), would provide workplace protections for public employees who fail drug screening due to the use of legal cannabis products. Currently, that would protect public sector workers who use products containing CBD. But if products containing THC ever become legal, “Shauna’s Law” would also protect their use by public employees. Kentucky NORML says its time to put pressure on state lawmakers to at least support medical cannabis reform, if not broader efforts at legalization and decriminalization. Cannabis in Kentucky For seven years, Kentucky has failed to move forward on the issue of cannabis. And the reason is a fairly straightforward one: opposition from high-ranking Republican lawmakers in the state Senate. That opposition might strike anyone with any knowledge of Kentucky’s history as odd, considering Kentucky has one of the largest hemp cultivation industries in the United States. And indeed, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who represents Kentucky, was the driving force behind the federal legalization of hemp in the 2018 Farm Bill. Yet in the Kentucky Capitol, anti-cannabis lawmakers are still resorting to uninformed, bad-faith arguments against legalization. The most high-ranking Republican lawmakers have done is call for more research. But those same lawmakers seem to be willingly ignoring the more than 26,000 published studies and reviews regarding cannabis available online. Or that the Center for Biotechnology Information summarized a group of FDA-approved clinical trials and found evidence for the use of cannabis as a medicine. Or that marijuana’s Schedule I classification means that the research lawmakers say they want would be illegal to conduct under federal law. Failing the (feigned) ignorance of these studies and the legal limitations to cannabis research, opposition lawmakers are often simply dismissive. “Have a bourbon,” is how Kentucky Senate President Robert Stivers replied to patients clamoring for medical cannabis access. Against opponents who refuse to come to the negotiating table in good faith, massive public pressure may be the only thing that gets the job done. After years of waiting for lawmakers to do the right thing on their own, Kentucky’s cannabis advocates will rally to spark a real discussion around cannabis reform.

    Pennsylvania Lawmaker to Introduce Bill to Legalize Adult-Use Cannabis

    A Pennsylvania lawmaker plans to introduce a bill that would legalize the recreational use of cannabis by adults in the state. Democratic Rep. Jake Wheatley announced in a tweet on Sunday that he would be introducing a recreational cannabis legalization bill at the state capitol on Monday. Under the measure, adults at least 21 years of age would be permitted to purchase and cultivate marijuana. “Tomorrow in Harrisburg I’ll introduce House Bill 50, my plan to legalize adult-use cannabis in Pennsylvania. HB 50 is more than legal cannabis—it’s a social justice framework to rectify decades of injustice,” Wheatley said. If successful, Wheatley’s bill would also expunge convictions for marijuana crimes, release inmates currently behind bars for such offenses, and return drivers’ license revoked or suspended for cannabis crimes. Public consumption of cannabis and driving under the influence would still be prohibited. A regulated retail cannabis infrastructure would be created that “would require that diverse groups have equal opportunity in the permitting process to be growers/processors and dispensaries,” according to the tweet. Wheatley’s bill calls for some state tax revenues to be invested in affordable housing, school-loan debt forgiveness, and after-school programs. County governments would be allowed to enact an optional tax of 3 percent on cannabis sales to fund public defender and children’s programs. Governor Considering Legalization Wheatley praised Gov. Tom Wolf when he announced in December that it was time to consider cannabis legalization in Pennsylvania. “Today I join with many Pennsylvanians to applaud our governor for finally publicly recognizing that our commonwealth needs to take a hard look at the numerous social, economic and medical benefits legal adult-use cannabis would bring to our state,” Wheatley said in a press release. “Pennsylvanians have spoken,” he continued. “They want the commonwealth to progress and for legislators to be creative and forward thinking. The legalization of cannabis with social justice reforms and investments in our future will strengthen the people and bring Pennsylvania into the 21st century.” In August, Wheatley launched an online petition to support cannabis legalization and listed some of the benefits of the end of marijuana prohibition. “There are tremendous benefits to legalizing marijuana and few downsides,” Wheatley said. “It’s estimated that legalization would generate more than $580 million in annual tax revenue for Pennsylvania. That’s money to balance our budget, strengthen our economy, bolster our workforce, and improve our schools.” Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program was signed into law in 2016, with legal sales beginning in February 2018.

  • Oil X Green

    The Oil X Green Extraction System Uses Pentane, We have after using and testing this Extraction System gave 4 Stars for ease  of use,  Its not hard to use but it is complex and you need to follow directions. We also gave it 3 stars on price, this is not meant to say that the product is overpriced but rather you may feel this is a high price to pay for extraction machine.       When looking at the $199 price one must consider that this will save you money long term because it recaptures over 90% of the Pentane used to extract the THC/CBD.     We Rated it at 5 stars for Quality of product, and 5 stars for Overall Value, This extraction package is full of quality products and thus delivers an excellent value for the price paid and this gives us an overall rating of 4 stars.   What you get in the Box: 2 buckets, 3 jars, 1 funnel with paper filters, 1 main tubing apparatus,1 blowout tube, 1 locking rod and 1 Pyrex petri dish along with instructions.   Buckets (2): These are a heavy plastic with handles,   Funnel (1): It is a heavy porcelain unit with built in strainer and comes with paper filters that fit inside the funnel.    The tubing and fittings (1): This is the main apparatus and can be purchased as their Bare metal Kit, The SS (316 stainless steel) and looks perfectly bent with heavy looking SS fittings going through the lids. You will also notice that the gasket material used on the Hot and Cold side is not the normal mason jar wax seal.   Jars (3): The jars themselves are regular mason type 1/2 gallon jars   Blowout tube (1): Made again of SS and also perfectly shaped   Locking Rod (1): Made of steel, Its purpose is to hold the cold side jar down in the cold side bucket. In my review and how to posts- I was never able to really figure out how this simple thing works, and TBH I didn't have any issue with ice causing the cold side jar to float- I did use the handle to secure it just to be safe.    Pyrex petri dish (1): A nice glass petri dish to finish evaporating the pentane from your oil   If you have extracted THC/CBD from Marijuana before using any of the home craft type systems using Alcohol or Butane you will already understand how this works.   If You have never done an extraction before    
    Then follow along while we walk through this process one step at a time First Chill Pentane and Weed Soak Weed in Pentane (You can experiment with this but 15-30 min should give adequate time) Strain weed from pentane attach clean jar to COLD side(with the coil) and Jar with pentane you strained to HOT side  Add Ice and Cold water to cold side bucket Working quickly add HOT water to Hot side bucket (Pentane boils at 98* so your water needs to stay above 98* for entire process which is about 45 min) If needed you can keep adding HOT water to keep temps up. Cover hot side bucket to keep heat in! Once almost all of the pentane has been extracted to Cold side you can remove the jars from the buckets Remove Hot jar and pour extract and what little pentane is left into petri dish Use blowout tube connected to HOT side and blow any remaining pentane back into COLD jar Remove cold jar and install storage lid, put back in refrigerator.  Now you can wait and allow the remaining pentane to evaporate in a warm spot with air blowing on it or you can get a small heater such as Store for dabs, dry thin for shatter, crumble,
     add an emulsifier and even terpenes to use in vape carts like the one I made in Video below.  Clean up and store away for next time.   After Using this I have to say I really like the system, and there is quite a little rush when you see the clean pentane spitting into cold side IMO this is much safer than butane to make and does not require the purging butane does- Because the pentane boils off at such low temps this saves many terpenes and cannabinoids from being lost to heat needed to evaporate during other extraction methods. The color of the oil is remarkable, Its a beautiful honey color due to Pentane not stripping chlorophyll and other things you don't want in your extract.           Check out the Video of the entire process below And check back for an updated video with corrected volume levels.   Also be sure to check out OilxGreens video below that as well!

    I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?

    Z strain

    Here we go. Half seasoned dry cow dung half horticultural grade coir. Brought to field capacity with bottle water. Make a dung lasagna. Layer of dung mix, layer of fully hydrated popcorn. They have split and been briefly rinsed. Here you go. Dark rich loose nutritious cakes. Layer of perlite. This is a filter. A waste land of nothing to eat for anything wanting to get in. Aluminum foil will keep water out during sterilization in pressure cooker.  Electrical tape will hold under heat, water, and pressure just fine. 90 minutes of pressure and steam minimum. Feel free to do more than once. Especially in a day or so. In case something survived you can kill it with another round. Fractional sterilization. I used to work with a giant tamales pot. Every other day for a week will kill everything. Pressure cooking is good but you can get around it.

    how to make a spore print

    Let's start this off here with an easy one lol.   You can make a spore print with any mushroom with gills, its very easy you simply get a new piece of alum. Foil, glass, and cut your mushroom stem off as close to the gills as possible, best mushies for this are those that just broke their viel and opened up. Place cap, or mushroom top gills down on clean new foil and place glass over so no breeze can disturb your spores as they fall.   For a light print, 24hrs should be enough, but 48hrs is best for a nice dark print.   A spore print is your seeds if you will, they look like fingerprint kinda and just look cool.   You can use your prints as is to knock up some jars, or make an lc or liquid culture, or make a spore syringe.   After your print is made gently remove the cap, fold over foil to cover print and keep it safe then I fold all open sides of foil so nothing can get in, then place in a shitty book nobody would ever want to read lol like an encyclopedia or something hehehe.   No special storage needs, just keep it safe from foil being torn.   Sorry for lack of pics I will post some soon of what a spore print looks like.   Any ? At all anyone feel free to ask

    DIY Diamonds and Sauce

    Isolating cannabinoids   A much purer form of cannabinoids are seen with CBD crystals and pure THC distillate becoming a more frequent sight in the Marijuana Market, Previous to this the vast majority of resin extracts have had an unknown cannabinoid content. When we isolate a cannabinoid, users can be confident that they have a product with a purity approaching 100%, which make dosages for things like edibles or labeling much simpler.               Anyone with a rosin press and some good quality starting material can make their own isolated THCA,  which is the un-decarboxylated, acid form of THC. It is a very simple mechanical separation process whereby rosin is re-pressed at low pressure and low temperature, through a fine mesh filter, extruding the terpenes, waxes, lipids and secondary cannabinoids, and leaving behind a very pure THCA inside the filter.      What you’ll need:   Rosin with a wax or stiff budder texture (for best results freeze your fresh trim/buds and use this to make water hash and use that water hash to make your Rosin) Rosin filter bags – 25 or 37 micron Parchment paper Manual rosin press with temperature control (air-assisted presses rarely have the delicacy needed to press at low pressure)   The importance of texture of rosin and starting material   To carry out this process successfully, the rosin we use as starting material must be in “budder” or “wax” form, a phenomenon which occurs as a product of THCA nucleation. Basically, the THCA molecule is a pseudo-polymorphic, meaning it is able to change and crystallize into different forms under certain conditions of pressure, temperatures, and depending on the interactions between the solvents (in this case the various terpenes), the solutes, (the cannabinoids) and any impurities present (for example plant fats, waxes and lipids). This can cause the THCA within the concentrate to crystallize and form a stiff, hard wax or budder texture and, in some examples, “crash out”, or separate itself from the other elements in the extraction, such as in the case of sugar wax, which takes on the consistency of wet granulated sugar as the THCA crystallizes and separates from the terpenes, secondary cannabinoids, fats and lipids.   These textures are more often experienced with high purity extractions of varieties with high terpene content, as well as with fresh-frozen bubble hash extractions, also due to the high levels of volatile terpenes, which not only offer a much more intense flavor and aroma, but when the bubble hash is pressed into rosin can often cause the rosin to nucleate and become budder almost as soon as it oozes out of the filter bag.   In the right conditions, stubborn rosin can be persuaded to nucleate to some extent and form a loose budder via heat and agitation, for example stirring with a dabber over a heating mat or hot plate set to 120 degrees Fahrenheit or less. While this method has works, degradation of some terpenes is inevitable when the extracts are exposed to this type temperature.   Preparing the starting material and press for separation   Once we’ve got our wax/budder rosin in the right state, it’s time to start preparing it for the separation process. Switch your press on and set temp to 130-140 degrees Fahrenheit. It is recommended to keep plates pressed together while heating to help in attaining a consistent even temperature.   Preparing the rosin   For separation to work properly, we need to enclose the rosin in a tight mesh screen, ideally this will be a 25 micron rosin bag, Pack the bag with the rosin, fold the opening over and cut off any remaining material.   Next we place the rosin, now in a tightly wrapped rosin bag into a folded sheet of parchment paper, and we’re ready to begin pressing.   Under pressure   Open the pressing plates enough to insert the folded parchment with the rosin parcel, so that it is centered with the open end facing outwards, towards you, so you’ll be able to see as the terpene rich sauce oozes out.     Now slowly close the plates until they just make contact with the parchment and its contents, Do Not exert any pressure, wait for 20-30 seconds for the rosin to warm up and start to melt. Begin to apply pressure very slowly and gently, very soon you should see liquid resin dripping from the plates on to the collection paper. Once you’ve reached maximum pressure, hold it there for up to a minute, or until the sauce stops dripping out.   Open the plates, take everything out of the press and put the parchment carefully to one side, keeping the rosin parcel for the second pressing.   Now repeat this process with the temperature raised to 175-195 degrees Fahrenheit, using a fresh piece of parchment to collect the sauce (there will be less this time, and it will be thicker). After this second press, remove everything from the plates, allow to cool and carefully open the filter parcel that held the rosin.   You should have a white, or very pale yellow substance with a chalky texture. You can press it again at a slightly higher temperature if you’d really like your THCA to be more pure and lighter colored.   If you’re separating the THCA for the purpose of accurate dosing for edibles, topicals and other applications requiring precise measurements, it is now ready to use in this state.               Recombine The diamonds with some sauce   If, however, the plan is to make some “diamonds and sauce” to dab then a little more work will need done to get the finished product you are seeking.   The final stage is to place the chalky, raw THCA on the plates on some parchment and melt it without applying pressure, so it liquefies and forms a pool (this can require temperatures upwards of 245 degrees Fahrenheit) . Carefully remove from the heat and allow to cool, so it can stabilize, it will become a much more visually attractive crystal-like texture once broken into smaller pieces.   Now, using a little heat to reduce viscosity and facilitate mixing, we can re-combine some of the THCA crystals with a little of the terpene-rich sauce that we separated earlier to create the famous Solvent-less  “diamonds and sauce”  extract that everyone is talking about.

    Medicated Peanut Butter

    40 oz jar peanut butter
      75 grams sugary trim - decarbed     take your de-carbed trim and using coffee grinder or food processor, grind to fine powder.  Empty peanut butter into microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for a minute. Add your powdered trim and stir well to incorporated all throughout the peanut butter. You can heat up longer to make it easier to stir and mix. That's it. Easy peasy. I use it it my Elvis cookies mostly, but tried it in the smoothie the other day and was pretty good. Peanut butter hides the weed taste very well.   If you are just going to make pb sammies or smoothies, you might benefit from doing the heating in a small saucepan on the stove for about 30 minutes.
      Add a teaspoon or two of liquid lecithin and put over low heat for 30 to 60 minutes.
      Stir often to mix weed flour in well. 
      When done just pour back in jar.

    Lifting you Higher

    It doesn't matter whether you're a new stoner or an Old Hippie stoner, at some point in your life you're just not going to get as high as you used to. When this happens you may find yourself trying to figure out how to get the most out of your weed. Luckily for you, stoners have pondered these questions and searched for the solutions to them for a long time.   To Hold or Not To Hold Your Hits   Obviously you need to inhale to get high, One of the first things you'll hear when you become part of a cannabis lifestyle is to hold your hits. You'll watch some people take hits and hold them until veins in their head are bulging, and their eyes start popping out from their skull. They exhale losing the bright red color to regain a normal complexion but only after a few moments of violent coughing. Now, does this get you higher? Those who smoke like this swear that it does. Science, however, begs to differ. Science says what these individuals are experiencing is actually oxygen deprivation, which can be dangerous.   The cannabinoids you need to get stoned like THC, CBN, CBG, CBD, and others are absorbed within milliseconds by the body, So take a big hit, Inhale and exhale.   Try Switching Your Methods of Getting High   You may wish to change up your method of using Marijuana. For example, if you're smoking bowls maybe switch it up and try smoking joints or vice versa.    Vaping cannabis cartridges are becoming popular. THC cartridges are available in all kinds of flavors and strain varieties. It's also a great way to compliment the beginning or end of a smoking a joint, bowl or bong . Edibles are another way to enlighten your high. Eating an edible takes longer to feel the effects from than smoking. Give edibles between 45 minutes and two hours to kick in. Some people will eat Edibles throughout the day to increase their High.   Try smoking a salad bowl to improve the entourage effect. Find your favorite indicas, hybrids, or sativas and mix them together in one bowl, joint or bong load. GG4, sour diesel and sugar black rose mixed is a nice end of day smoke.   If you have large lungs and can tolerate huge hits you could try a gravity bong. These can easily be constructed with a 2L bottle plus a sink or bucket.   Rolling a joint properly is an issue that newcomers to smoking pot can often face. If you don't roll the joint right, it won't burn right or be so tightly packed you just dont get high. Any and all stems along with seeds must be removed. Weed needs to be broken up correctly to burn right in a joint.     A lot of stoners preparing to roll a joint use a grinder for their weed. Not only will it give you a pile of pot to work with you also end up with a collection of kief (trichomes) over time. You can add that kief to all kinds of things BUT...You should cut a small amount of weed up with scissors to add to the ground weed or only grind it for a short time so you still have some larger strands of weed, this will keep the fine ground stuff from packing so tight inside the paper.             Find High THC Strains LINK TO STRAIN GUIDE   If you're not getting high on the weed you're smoking it might not be you or your method of smoking it could be the weed. Try finding something different to smoke. Look for high THC strains when possible.   Today there are so many Indica, sativa, and hybrid cannabis strains that are all extremely potent. Look for strains that have 18% or higher THC. Also try to find strains that test for a full cannabinoid profile of other cannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, CBD, and others to get the entourage effect. The entourage effect is achieved through a broad spectrum of different cannabinoids working together and produces a more intense and a longer buzz.   Gorilla Glue #4, Girl Scout Cookies, Grand Daddy Purp, Moonshine Haze, Afghani, Hindu Kush, and Durban Poison, when flowered to perfection, are sure to get you lit.   Try Using Kief, Hash, and Dabs   If you've never used cannabis concentrates before and your not getting as high as you used to, then you are going to love this. Don't be intimidated by the blowtorch and glass pipe. There are electronic devices that you can use if you're not comfortable with a torch. Try dabbing first. If you've never taken a dab, get ready to love weed in a whole different way. Start small because cannabis concentrates/dabs are extremely strong. Don't hit it like a bong or you'll definitely choke. Just hit it slow and smooth. If you're not quite ready for dabbing you can always add it to a joint or Bowl.   A lot of people like to roll a thin rope of shatter and wrap it around a joint. This is called twaxing. Personally, I like to keep that dab rope straight and put it inside my joint, so dabs don't drip all over the place while I'm smoking. It doesn't look as pretty, but it's much more effective to me.   You can also use the kief you've collected in your grinder  and add that to your joints or top of bowls to intensify your Buzz. You can also Vape your hash or kief. If your a cigarette smoker you can add hash or kief to a hand roll cigg.   Foods That Get You Higher   Terpene interaction helps to influence your high. When you increase terpenes, your body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) either absorbs more or fewer cannabinoids. The ECS has many different cannabinoid receptors. Two of them that science is becoming familiar with is called CB1 and CB2 receptors. When they interact with terpenes found in certain foods we get increased or decreased benefits.   Mangoes   Mangoes, like cannabis, contain terpenes. One particular terpene called myrcene is thought to speed up the on-set and extend the duration of a high by helping cannabinoids through the Blood Brain Barrier more quickly and efficiently. When mangoes are consumed an hour before a smoke session, myrcene enters into the bloodstream where it binds with various Cannabinoid receptors.   Nuts   Marijuana edibles can take a while to set in, but the process can be sped up by consuming nuts along with them. That’s because nuts contain high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids which bind to cannabinoids and help them through the Blood Brain Barrier. The high concentration of “healthy fats” in nuts can also protect the heart which is especially beneficial for those suffering from cardiovascular problems.    Herbs and spices   Some herbs (such as thyme, sage and bay) contain the terpene, pinene, a natural bronchodilator that opens up passages in the lungs thus increasing surface level and cannabinoid absorption. In doing so, cannabinoids can pass between the blood and the brain more quickly thus speeding the onset and increasing the duration of a marijuana high. Other herbs (specifically, those containing the terpene limonene) can counter negative side effects of cannabis consumption by decreasing anxiety, depression and stress. Herbs that contain limonene, including Lemon Thyme, Lemon Basil or Lemongrass, can easily be grown in a sunny windowsill for quick anxiety relief. Black pepper can also help decrease mental stress.   Broccoli   Broccoli contains high levels of the terpene, Beta–caryophyllene, which binds to CB2 receptors in the body much like other cannabinoids. It can work in a synergistic way with cannabinoids by helping to reduce pain, inflammation and depression. Though consuming broccoli alone won’t make you feel high, eating a little right before a mellow indica evening could help get you into the comfortable high you desire.   Sweet Potatoes   Sweet potatoes contain carbohydrates and B vitamins, both of which have been shown to increase serotonin production in the brain. And because they are low-fat and relatively low in protein, the mood-boosting serotonin can work relatively quick.  Sweet potatoes (like pumpkin) also contain high levels of Vitamin E. Because diets that are low in Vitamin E tend to cause feelings of depression, an extra boost of this vital vitamin can help bust the blues and allow you to enjoy your high much more thoroughly.   Tea   Black and green teas contain catechin, an antioxidant that can bind with CB1 receptors in the brain to cause feelings of peace and relaxation. When consumed in conjunction with cannabis, tea can improve mood, decrease stress and increase feelings of euphoria.   Beer   Pounding a couple beers while smoking is a powerful combination, indeed. Commonly referred to as getting “twisted” or “crossfaded”, consuming marijuana in conjunction with beer can significantly increase a person’s level of impairment.   A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Chemistry found that those who consumed cannabis in conjunction with alcohol had “significantly higher blood THC” than those who only consumed cannabis. This explains why the “spins” are so commonly reported after a bud/booze combo and further supports the need for extreme moderation when consuming the two together.    Change Your Scenery   Perhaps it's time for a change of placement? Try getting out and smoking somewhere else, Changing your environment will often help produce a more intense high.            Try a Tolerance Break This is not recommended if you're a medical patient, Tolerance breaks can cause relapses in conditions that can be extremely dangerous.   Last but not least if everything else is failing then there's only one thing left to do. It's time to try a tolerance break. This doesn't mean smoke a little here and there. This means You act like you were just arrested and put on probation awaiting weekly drug test!   Don't consume any kind of weed for at least 2 weeks.   A tolerance break on average is 2 weeks but can be shorter or longer depending on the individual. You know your body better than anyone else, give yourself at least 48 hours or longer without weed if you're going to try a tolerance break. Be strong and resist the urge to smoke for as long as you can.   Tips for Getting Lit When Smoking Weed   Smoke More If you're only smoking a little and not getting high, smoke more.
      Smoke Less  If you're smoking too much take a chill pill. Do something active that prevent you from smoking for a few hours. Then smoke.
      Break out the big guns for delivering big Powerhouse hits, think Gravity bongs, steam rollers, & huge blunts.
      Eat a cannabis-infused edible, take a cannabis capsule
      Try Concentrates
      Change up and Smoke a joint instead of a bowl/bong or vice versa
      Drink a beer. 
      Get your weed from a different source. Sometimes it's not the weed, it's just that you're building up a tolerance to it. Switching to an entirely different strain will often fix this problem.
      Stay hydrated when you're smoking. Don't wait to get cotton mouth or you're depriving yourself of the buzz you could have had. Being hydrated during cannabis consumption is extremely important to get the full effects of your weed.
      Smoke a bowl right when you wake up. A wake-n-bake is a great way to get extremely stoned. Add a cup of coffee to that wake and bake. It's not going to counteract your weed, Coffee and cannabis go hand-in-hand thanks to the Bliss molecule AKA anandamide.

    Top 5 CBD Questions

    As the second most prevalent cannabinoid in Marijuana, CBD offers a wide range of health benefits. And it’s so effective that many people are using CBD to replace traditional medications like painkillers, antidepressants and sleeping pills.      People who are new to using CBD, however, can be intimidated by the amount of information and advice found online. And one of the most common questions people want answered is, "What is CBD and How do I use it?" This article will answer that question, giving you a clear understanding of how different CBD products work, the different ways you can administer CBD, and how long each method takes to work.   What is CBD?   Let’s go over just what CBD is, what CBD oil is, and give you a quick rundown of CBD’s health benefits. So, CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is a chemical compound produced in the resinous flowers of the marijuana plant. It’s part of a group of chemicals called cannabinoids, of which the most well-known is THC.   THC is the cannabinoid that gets users ‘high’ or ‘stoned’. CBD, on the other hand, is not psychotropic, meaning it doesn't intoxicate you in any way. There are studies that show CBD can actually mediate some of the negative effects associated with THC use, such as paranoia and anxiety.   What are the Health benefits of CBD?
    There is plenty of research on CBD, and more is in the works right now. So far, scientists have concluded that CBD is a potent anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, and analgesic (pain reliever). It can also reduce seizures in those suffering from certain types of epilepsy.   CBD also looks like it holds great promise in treating mental health issues such as depression, addiction and PTSD. Not only that, but the research also suggests that CBD could improve bone health, help manage diabetes, reduce acne and skin problems, relieve IBS symptoms, and Many other health issues.   What are the types of CBD Products?
    As the therapeutic effects of CBD have become more well-known, the amount of CBD products on the market has grown substantially. There are now hundreds of different brands selling thousands of different types of CBD-containing products, Which is both a blessing and a curse. While we are blessed with easier access to CBD products, We are cursed by the fact that often times people do not know what is truly in the product they maybe using. Places like Joy Organics are  trying to help with providing full information on whats in the products and how they extracted them from the plant, where the plants come from...etc.   Let’s take a look at the most common types of CBD products.   CBD Oil
    CBD oil is the most popular CBD-containing product on the market. It’s made from a carrier oil - most commonly coconut oil, olive oil or hemp seed oil - mixed with CBD (either in the form of a CBD isolate of as part of a full-spectrum extract). CBD oils come in a variety of mixtures and concentrations. They can be applied under the tongue (sublingually), through the skin (topically), or mixed with food or drink.   E-liquids
    The popularity of vaping e-liquids has exploded in the last few years. And many people are now vaping CBD e-liquid as a convenient and fast-acting way of taking CBD.   Isolates
    CBD isolate is what it sounds like: CBD that has been isolated. This concentrated form of CBD, which is sold as powder or crystals, is a versatile CBD product. It can be used to make edibles, home-made e-liquids, or consumed on its own by either smoking or dabbing it.   Edibles
    There are a variety of different CBD edibles available. They include candies such as chocolates and cookies, and even drink mixes.   Topical 
    By infusing cosmetics like moisturizers and balms with CBD, you have a wellness product that has the ability to target specific areas through the skin. Products are available in a range of different blends and with varying concentrations of CBD.    Capsules
    CBD capsules represent a simple and convenient way to take CBD oil. They also allow you to dose accurately and avoid the often-unpleasant taste of CBD oil. The CBD used in most products is derived from legally-grown hemp and is, therefore, considered legal in all 50 states and most countries around the world.   How Long Does CBD Oil Take to Work?
    There is no one correct answer to this question. The speed at which CBD starts to work depends on a number of factors, including your age, weight and health status. However, the most important factor to consider when estimating the time CBD takes to work is the method of consumption. Here, we will cover the methods of application of CBD and give you an idea of how long each one takes to work.   Through the lungs
    Smoking or vaporizing (including dabbing) is the quickest way to get the therapeutic effects of CBD. Once inhaled, the CBD is absorbed via the lungs into the bloodstream. Effects are felt almost immediately. It’s ideal for immediate relief from, say, pain conditions.   Under the tongue
    As we mentioned above, CBD oil is most commonly taken under the tongue for it to be absorbed via the sublingual tissue. This is a pretty quick and efficient way of dosing CBD. Effects should be noticed within 10 minutes after dosing.   Through the skin
    CBD topicals are used to treat localized problems, such as sore joints and abrasions as well skin conditions. This method is not the speediest and you may only feel subtle effects about 30 minutes to an hour after applying the topical.    Through the gut
    Eating CBD is popular but is not the most fast-acting or efficient method. Not only does some of the CBD not make it past your gut and into your blood, the CBD that does make it can take some time to get there. Depending on what and when you last ate, effects could take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour or more to kick in.   How do you Know if CBD is Working?  
      You now know all about the many types of CBD products and how long you can expect each method of application to take.   But how do you know if the CBD product you have chosen is working?    Well, there are some common experiences that should help you know that CBD is working for you. Firstly, a large majority of people who use CBD find that it makes them very calm and relaxed. Many even describe a sense of warm relief coming over them. If you generally have a racing mind, it may well slow right down as anxiety levels drop.   Next, if you have any overt medical symptoms, like aches or pains, these may begin to fade.         Of course, not everyone will have the same experience. There are many variables at play that can affect how CBD affects you. Dosage is an important one. While larger doses work for some, others will only require a small dose. Other people may find that CBD just simply doesn’t work for them, no matter the dose.           There you have it, A complete overview of the different types of CBD products out there and how long they take to work. Some are fast acting, and some take much longer. What’s best for you, however, depends on your preferences and needs. As with every supplement you take, the most important thing to consider when dosing CBD is your personal experience. What works for others might not work for you. Find a method of consumption and a product that suits you. Then you’ll be able to make the most of one of the most therapeutic chemicals to have been discovered.

    Marijuana and Exercise

    When you think of some of the most common stimulating substances, Marijuana usually is not the first one that comes to mind. However Marijuana and exercise, as it turns out, has quite a unique relationship status.   Many people  who exercise, use Marijuana to boost their fitness and performance.   With Marijuana, you can give the term ‘Exercise high or runner’s high’ a whole new meaning   The human body is known to store its own natural THC in fat. Which is also the main psychoactive in cannabis. Studies have found that this stored THC content can still have an effect for up to about 28 days after its consumption. With this in mind, the moment your body starts burning off fat, it starts releasing THC into the bloodstream. And the effect is similar to that of a person who has used marijuana in small quantities.   THC blood levels have been found to increase by up to 15% immediately after doing moderate exercise, But these increased THC levels are no longer present after two hours from the workout time.   You also find that the larger the BMI (Body Mass Index), the greater the THC levels will be. Showing that there is a correlation between THC release and your BMI.   ‘stoner high’ and ‘runner high’ are synonymous things         Exercise is definitely good for you, for everyone who wants to be fit and live a healthy lifestyle. Not only is key when it comes to preventing obesity, diabetes, heart diseases...etc. It also improves the creation of new brain cells. Exercise is also known to decrease stress, reduce anxiety and a whole host of other benefits, But you find that it’s not all about the endorphins which are the compounds that make you feel excited during and after activities such as sex and exercise. These are the compounds that make physical activity feel so great.   Exercise works by activating your endocannabinoid system. Similar to what consuming marijuana does. These compounds contain groups of lipids and fats, which help compounds like CBD and THC bind to cannabinoid receptors. These cannabinoids are the compounds responsible for easing pain, influencing mood, memory, and controlling appetite.   Your own body is known to produce its own cannabinoids, especially during exercise. Human-produced cannabinoids increase significantly as you exercise. So, when exercising you may get a feeling of "Slightly High" even having not consumed any Marijuana prior to working out.   Fat vs Marijuana    The best way you can burn off that dunkin doughnuts trip is simply doing some moderate exercises. It’s vital to know that you don’t just lose weight by burning calories using exercises. Recent studies have found that the regular marijuana users have fasting insulin levels in their bodies, lower than those of the non-consumers of the drug. The marijuana users also had lower insulin resistance levels in their body. Marijuana users were also found to have lower average waist circumferences. If your body cells have too much sugar that is unused, then you will start to experience weight gain. You may also gain some weight if your body isn’t properly handling insulin.   All of this shows that Marijuana can help a great deal when it comes to facilitating and improving the body’s metabolic functions.

    First of all, you will need about half a gram of weed for each cracker you will make. Figure out how many crackers you expect to make and acquire the right amount of weed accordingly. Secondly, you will need Ritz crackers, Saltine crackers, Jacobs crackers, or some other similar type of cracker that go well with peanut butter.
     
    Now for the peanut butter: you should make sure that it is a type of peanut butter that has plenty of peanut oil. It should be non-hydrogenated as well. Unfortunately, Jif and Skippy brands of peanut butter do not have enough peanut oil in them — and that means they won’t work for this recipe. Go for another brand. You can also use Nutella or a chocolate spread instead of peanut butter if you prefer. Crunchy peanut butter is also perfectly fine to use.
     
    Next, you will need an item to mix together your peanut butter and the marijuana. This should be something small, like a toothpick. You should also have scissors of some sort or else a coffee grinder on hand to cut up the marijuana with. Make sure there’s enough tin foil to cover and store the crackers when they’re done. Finally, you will also need an oven.
     
    How to make firecrackers
     
    First, you will need to bake your marijuana. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. While you wait for it to heat up, take scissors and cut up the marijuana into tiny pieces. A coffee grinder will also do the job thoroughly and quickly; the finer the pieces of marijuana, the better it will work for your weed peanut butter crackers.
     
    Once the oven is ready, you can put your marijuana inside a tin foil bowl of sorts to hold the marijuana. Leave it in for about a quarter of an hour, then check on the weed. If it is extremely powdery or dusty, they have been baked for the perfect amount.
     
    Baking your marijuana is a highly important part of creating a weed firecracker. The reason for this is that it needs to be decarboxylated. Decarboxylation means that the THCA turns into THC. This can only occur when the marijuana is dried out enough — this drying process is accomplished through baking the weed. This process automatically happens when you smoke or vaporize marijuana since it is heated up enough for the decarboxylation process to take place. If you forget to bake your marijuana, you won’t feel a thing from your peanut butter pot cookies, so be sure not to forget.
     
    The next thing you should do is turn up the oven to approximately 300 degrees Fahrenheit, then wait for ten to fifteen minutes. Put a thick layer peanut butter (regular peanut butter without any weed yet) on both sides of each cracker (up to a centimeter). Then take your freshly baked marijuana and sprinkle it on half of the peanut butter crackers. Leave the other half for sandwiching it later.
     
    Take your toothpick or other mixing tool and mix the peanut butter with the marijuana, doing so as thoroughly as possible on top of the cracker. You want as much weed as you can to touch peanut butter. When you’re done with that, sandwich the crackers together and wrap them up in tin foil.
     
    Place the wrapped up peanut butter weed crackers onto a cookie sheet and into the oven and bake them for 20 minutes. Once the twenty minutes have passed, up the heat level to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit and leave it for another two minutes. Remove the freshly baked weed peanut butter cookies from the oven and set them to the side until they have cooled off. Now you are free to enjoy your delicious marijuana firecrackers!

  • DIY Hash Oil and Concentrates

    Hello everyone
    I would like to show you a new system for making hash oil and marijuana concentrates at home. It is called OilXGreen (www.oilxgreen.net) and costs less than $200. It uses Pentane as a solvent. Pentane works well for extracting THC as it extracts only the desired components. No need to winterize or remove waxes. Check out the video to see just how easy it is to create hash oil and other extracts at home.

    Automate your humidifier for grows/drying

    Hey guys!  I picked up a few tricks since I've been away and this one is among my favorites.  I made it to eliminate my stress during drying, but it also works well during your grow.  All you really need to set is the minimum humidity level you want to maintain.  I keep it at 60 for both grows and drying.  You can use a cheaper DHT11 sensor, but the 22 is more accurate.  Be safe, and do not attempt this if you can't protect yourself from fire and or electrocution!  I recommend painting the clear plastic tank (if your humidifier has one) white until no light shine through it.  I also add a couple drops of bleach to the tank every other time I fill it up.  Place the humidifier near/behind your fans to keep the mist from hitting the sensor and triggering the unit off.  This little mod has saved me many many many many gray hairs come dry/curing time.  THIS DOES REQUIRE SOLDERING!   How it works:  When your humidity drops below your desired level, it will turn the humidifier on automagically until it reaches +5% your minimum setting, at which point, it will turn off and wait for it to drop again.  Pretty straight forward.  I put a lot of comments in the code.  I've run this for a few years now, and it's rock solid and fully tested.  I should probably draw a wiring diagram, but everything is available on the 'net.   Parts:  Humidifier  -- I used a vicks from walmart, about 20 bucks. DHT22 sensor -- $5 I think? 4.7K ohm resisitor -- for the sensor.   Arduino -- I used the smallest one I could find.  https://www.gearbest.com/boards-shields/pp_226799.html?wid=1433363  .. $7 Arduino relay -- just a single relay.  less than $2 5v regulated AC adapter -- amazon that shit.  10 bucks. A few jumper wires   HOWTO: 1.  Program the arduino using the code below. 2.  Connect the power and sensor pin on the DHT22 with a 4.7K resistor (solder it) 3.  Solder your sensor wire and its power pins to the board.  Give your sensor 6" or so of wire. 4.  Solder your relay control wire and power pins to the board. 5.  Tuck it all inside the base of your humidifier.  Use some hot glue to keep it from shaking about.  Route the sensor outside the unit. 6. Splice the humidifiers AC neutral wire over to your AC adapter. 7.  Cut the AC hot wire 6" from where it ends up (usually a switch on the front of the unit) and route it over to your Normally Open terminal on the relay.  Splice the hot wire to power your adapter and connect the other to your Common terminal on the relay. 8. Enjoy.  If you've done it properly, everything but the sensor is hidden in the base.   /* Beekers Smart Humidifier v1 */ #include <DHT.h>  // sensor library

    Arduino 2 lamp and fan controller

    This one is sort of a PITA because I never did add in a switch to flip between photoperiods easily.  I have to edit the code and re-upload it.  however, since I use an arduino micro and plug it into a breadboard, it's pretty easy to remove and bring it over to the PC.   How it works: You set what time you want your lights to turn on and off and when it's time to turn them on, it will start the first lamp, then the lamp cooling fan in 5 seconds, then 10 seconds after the first lamp fires, the 2nd lamp starts.  The exhaust fan/canopy fan starts after 30 seconds of lights on.  Everything is staggered so it doesn't slam your breaker and trip it.  When it's time to turn off, both lamps go off along with the room exhaust/canopy fans while the lamp cooling fan continues for another 10 mins to cool the bulbs.  If the controller is turned on during a time when your lamps would normally be on, it goes into a protection mode and turns the lamp cooling fan on for 10 mins before starting the lamps.  This is to avoid a hot bulb restart in the case of a brown-out that resets the controller.   The only soldering needed is for the AC adapter, so this one is a bit easier to put together than the humidifier controller.  I use breadboard wires to connect everything.   Parts: Arduino micro --  Like this: https://www.gearbest.com/sensors/pp_729019.html?wid=1433363  NOTE:  whichever arduino you use, make sure it has a 3.3v ouput pin for the RTC RTC  -- arduino real time clock. 2 double relays  -- 4 relays in total 5v regulated AC adapter   3 single plug outlets, 1 double outlet, electrical boxes, some wiring for it all.  The double outlet is for your carbon filtered room exhaust and canopy fan (if you use one).   Build notes:  it all goes together quite easily.  I installed the AC adapter inside the electrical box behind the outlets.  I used 2 boxes and a second 5v adapter so I could have the lamps on a 220V line, but you could use just 1 box if you wanted.  Just be sure to label those 220V sockets if you don't change the plug type!!! The arduino and relays are attached to the outside of the box so everything stays together.  Power them directly with the AC adapter, not the arduino.  I think it might have just enough power to do it, but it would be right at the limits with 4 of them.  Wiring diagrams are all online for each component.  You'll also have to program the RTC with the correct time.  That code is quite common and will come with the library files you download.  I've used this code for several years now, so it's well tested and bulletproof.  Enjoy!   Code:   /* Beekers Lamp Controller v1.0.1   *
